Taking on White Supremacy: Black and Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Solidarity
In this workshop, we will discuss the long history of solidarity between Black and APPI communities and envision new ways of being in solidarity with each other in support of Black Lives Matter and Stop Asian Hate movements. We will expose the ways in which white supremacy has fueled tensions and divided Black and APPI communities and will address the anti-Blackness and xenophobia that exist within our communities. We need each other in the struggle to dismantle white supremacy, and this workshop will provide opportunities to build deeper bridges of understanding and connection to each other as we work to create a world where Black and brown people are safe and free from racism and violence. We persevere in this work in the service of our collective liberation and the full recognition of the value of our lives and humanity.
